When the Ohio Bluebird Society (OBS) hosts its conference Saturday, March 4, at the Ashland University Convocation Center (638 Jefferson St, Ashland, OH 44805), it promises to bring together history, hope and joy for “30 Years of Bluebird Happiness – 1987-2017.”
The celebration atmosphere will feature charter members, highlights of the roots of the organization, recognition of faithful supporters and a lunch hour with four breakout sessions. Habitat conservation speakers are scheduled. In closing moments OBS grant recipients are sharing success stories.
Conference planners invite everyone who has an interest in the conservation of eastern bluebirds to attend.. Breakout sessions are to be led by experienced bluebirders who plan support for beginning birders, ideas for improving nest box results, encouragement for youth and a general share session for questions and answers. Non-profit exhibits will surround the meeting room. A silent auction table will offer numerous items related to birding, a few gift baskets and certificates from area organizations and businesses. A variety of nest boxes will be available for purchase.
Registration is $25 for OBS members and $30 for non-members (includes morning coffee and donuts, a box lunch, birthday cake, favors and door prizes.) Registration forms are available on the OBS website (www.ohiobluebirdsociety.org). Deadline is February 18.
